of the administration's nsa surveillance program. so what did you think, senator? were you pleased, not so pleased? >>el with, what i think i heard was that if you like your privacy, you can keep it. but in the meantime, we're going to keep collecting your phone records, your e-mails, your text messages, and likely your credit card information. so i didn't hear any lessening of the spying on americans or collecting records of americans. i heard that trust me, i'm going put some more safeguards in place, but i'm going to keep right on collecting every american's records. this is something that is going to have to be decided by the supreme court. i think there is a real fundamental question whether one general warrant can apply to millions of people's records. and i think it's incorrectly being done, and the supreme court is going to ultimately have to decide on this. >> you filed a lawsuit, to remind our viewers, what is so irritating, upsetting to you? >> well, the thing is that, you know, he mentioned paul revere. but paul revere was warning us of the british coming. he wasn't war

defended the nsa and the program. you were at the cia after the 9/11 attacks. what did you think the president said? >> well i think the president did a good job of lailg out for the public the role of intelligence in our national security system and i think he also did a good job of defending the nsa and americaing clear that other countries have intelligence programs like this. now, when he comes to the actual recommendations that he made i think the phrases that came to mind for me are the devil is rail in the details here. and also, wait and see. because when you look at the metadata program which has been probably the most controversial, what i heard him say was: we're going to transition this to a different system in which that data will be held by someone other than the u.s. government. he noted that's going to be complicated, that's not simple. if you put it in the hands of the phone companies they all have different systems for collecting the data. if you put it in hands of someone else kim i'm not -- else, i'm not sure who that would be. i can't think off the top of my head
